If its just a crawl space, and you dont plan to live down there then you can probably get some concrete waterproof patch and do it yourself. How old is the house? You may want to ensure you do not have hydrostatic pressure on those walls pushing them inward. that may require a professional. But be careful as most will just say you do and try to sell you a $5000 drainage system...
